The member representing Khana-Gokana in the House of Representatives, Dumnamene Robinson Dekor has promised to provide educational support to eight indigenes of Barako and Nwebiara Community in Gokana Local Government Area.
Dum Dekor announced this during a Novelty football match between the two communities on Sunday, 15th, May, while nothing that the benefits of peaceful coexistence cannot be overemphasized.
Dum Dekor who had earlier given educational supporters to the both communities upon the return peace pledged to support eight others, saying, it will be used to remember the peace that has returned.
At the town square in Nwebiara, I made a promise and I want to reinforce that promise because all we can do, instead of buying guns for our people, is to promote education because those who are educated will have opportunities.
“Most importantly today, to sustain this peace, I have spoken to my brother here, Hon. Dumle Maol and the Paramount Rulers but I’m moved to also improve a bit. You know we have one person each in higher institutions.
“I was asking if the strike is affecting them or not, that the second tranche is supposed to be ready now.
“But while we are going to do the second tranche, we also want to ask that the Menebon Barako should give us four additional persons from Barakpo, and the Menebon Nwebiara should give us four additional persons”, he said and urged them to be gender sensitive in choosing the beneficiaries”.
